It depends on the day I’ve had. A long exhaustive day, I listen to my body and try to disconnect as early as 9pm. On a regular day usually by 10:30p or 11pm
I usually disconnect one hour before going to bed. That gives me time to meditate and relax a bit before going to sleep, which helps me fall asleep faster
I disconnect as early as 1-2 hours before I go to bed. I normally disconnect around 11:30 almost alway, and would go to sleep at 1 or 2 in the morning, sometime earlier. I realize that’s a late bedtime and I’m working on that. I would like to go to sleep earlier and I have been slowly but surely. Disconnecting really helped. After I disconnect I busy myself with preparing my breakfast for tomorrow, making sure I fill up my water bottle for the next day, getting my kids ready for bed, then, right before I sleep I do my skincare routine, which is always relaxing and a wind down, while listening to nightly coaching on fabulous.
I disconnect twice a day, 1st is work-related, I set my phone to block distractions from 9-11:30 am so I can focus on work (writing/reading). 2nd I disconnect from everything at 10pm and set my phone to airplane mode before I get to bed.

- I’ve found that a lot of my screen time is actually spent messaging people – I don’t want to disconnect from people but how do I manage this?
- What do you do when you disconnect and unplug?
- Do others feel very down and disappointed about their habit too?
- Is it better to reply to texts or messages straight away so that you don’t feel pressured, or is it better to leave it until you feel ready?
